STEP 3Athlete Protection Training (Renew every 12 months) Free
 

STEP 4Concussion Protocol Training -  (You will need to send a screenshot of your completion certificate to [email protected]).  Free

 

STEP 5Take the USA Swimming Test for Stroke & Turn/Timer  (The test is open book and is pretty easy.  All questions give the location in the Rulebook to where the answer can be located!)  Must take recertification test every 2 years.

 

STEP 6:  Attend a training clinic (Attend for recertification every year).  If you cannot attend a Stroke & Turn Training Clinic, you may complete an online version of the clinic:

Email your completed certificate to the Member/Certifications Chair ([email protected]) for the MV Officials Committee in order to have your clinic posted to your member record.  

 

STEP 7Apprentice on Deck (A total of 6 sessions @ 2 different meets).  You will schedule these assignments with me as EKC attends meets.  

 

**You may need to send an email to the Member/Certifications Chair for the MV Officials Committee, to make sure your registrations have been received for every step.
